Rivers crisis: Labour Party drops petition against Fubara, pledges support

The Labour Party, LP, has dropped its petition against the election of Rivers State Governor, Sim Fubara.

Fubara was the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2023 gubernatorial poll in Rivers State.

Beatrice Itubo, the LP’s governorship candidate in the state, revealed the withdrawal of the petition in an interview with Channels Television on Saturday.

Itubo also pledged her support for Fubara’s government for the progress of Rivers State.

DAILY POST recalls that the LP had challenged Fubara’s victory but the Appeal Court sitting in Lagos dismissed its petition and upheld the PDP candidate’s election.

The alignment between Fubara and Itubo is the latest development in the political crisis rocking Rivers State, following a face-off between Fubara and his predecessor, Federal Capital Terrritory, FCT, Minister Nyesom Wike.
